Update April 4, 2012:
The Pokey Crocus won Drinking in America's spring-themed Cabin Fever Cocktail Challenge! Judge Michael Cerretani, a bartender at Boulder, Colorado's Bitter Bar, described the drink as, "Nicely balanced between sweet and dry, hints of mint and chamomile, with a nice light floral finish. A great springtime cocktail in the sense that it's refreshing and at the same time has multiple layers of flavor. Additionally it's a nice transition from winter in the sense that it’s still spirit forward and intense. I think this cocktail would hold up well at the Bitter Bar because it is unique, well balanced, and nicely reminiscent of the classics."
